June 1, 1974 was originally released by Island Records the same year in which it was recorded.

The idea for the concert came from Richard Williams (Island's A&R), who suggested that the reunion of all of these Island artists would help generate interest in the label (which had up to then been primarily associated with reggae). Brian Eno performs two songs from his debut solo album Here Come the Warm Jets (1973), while former Velvet Underground chanteuse Nico delivers a stunning version of The Doors ''The End''. Fellow former Velvet John Cale curdles the blood with his alarming take on Elvis Presley's ''Heartbreak Hotel''. Ayers' selections take up the remainder of the album and they're also spectacular.

The personnel is completed with Ayer's extraordinary touring band The Soporifics – featuring guitarist Ollie Halsall (Patto, Timebox)–, exceptionally reinforced by none other than Robert Wyatt (Soft Machine) and the famous British guitarist Mike Oldfield.
